New Farmers.gov Feature Helps Producers Find Farm Loans that Fit Their Operation

A new online tool can help farmers and ranchers find information on U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) farm loans that may best fit their operations. USDA has launched the new Farm Loan Discovery Tool as the newest feature on farmers.gov, the Department’s self-service website for farmers.

USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) offers a variety of loan options to help farmers finance their operations. From buying land to financing the purchase of equipment, FSA loans can help.

Farmers who are looking for financing options to operate a farm or buy land can answer a few simple questions about what they are looking to fund and how much money they need to borrow. After submitting their answers, farmers will be provided information on farm loans that best fit their specific needs. The loan application and additional resources also will be provided.

The Farm Loan Discovery Tool is one of many resources on farmers.gov to help connect farmers to information that can help their operations. Earlier this year, USDA launched the My Financial Information feature, which enables farmers to view their loan information, history, payments, and alerts by logging into the website.

Holstein Association USA encourages the use of RFID ear tags to meet USDA requirements

BRATTLEBORO, Vt., August 23, 2019 – USDA announced their implementation timeline for mandatory electronic animal identification for cattle earlier this year. By January 1, 2023 all dairy cattle will require an official 840 RFID ear tag for interstate movement.

The use of radio frequency identification (RFID) ear tags speeds up data collection and improves animal disease traceability. This improved level of traceability is crucial to protect the long-term health, marketability and economic viability of the U.S. livestock industry.

To initiate the move away from metal tags, and toward RFID ear tags, USDA has announced an implementation timeline:

• December 31, 2019 – USDA will discontinue providing free metal tags. However, approved vendors will be permitted to produce official metal tags for one additional year. Approved vendor tags will be available for purchase on a State-by-State basis as authorized by each State animal health official through December 31, 2020.

• January 1, 2021 – USDA will no longer approve vendor production of metal ear tags with the official USDA shield. Accredited veterinarians and/or producers can no longer apply metal ear tags for official identification and must start using official RFID ear tags.

• January 1, 2023 – RFID ear tags will be required for dairy cattle moving interstate. Animals previously tagged with metal ear tags will have to be retagged with RFID ear tags.

“Holstein Association USA encourages dairymen to consider adding or switching to RFID ear tags with their next inventory tag order,” says Darin Johnson, Holstein Association USA Dairy Identification Manager. “USDA has been providing free metal ear tags, so their implementation timeline has focused on the move away from them. For our members that have been using visual 840 tags, those animals also will have to be retagged after January 1, 2023 to comply with USDA’s RFID requirement.”

In order to purchase official 840 RFID ear tags, a producer must first obtain a premises identification number (PIN) from their state’s department of agriculture. Once a premises identification number is acquired, visit www.holsteintags.com to order tags or contact a Holstein Association USA customer service representative by calling, 800.952.5200.
